And Further Reflections on the Role of Creative Writing in the Tragedy at Virginia Tech

In two previous posts (here and here) I’ve tried to reflect a bit on the place of creative writing in last week’s terrible events at Virginia Tech. And I’ve tried to link to others’ thoughts; in this post I’ll refer you to some more of that writing:

In The New York Times, Marc Santora and Christine Hauser write that the “Anger of Killer Was on Exhibit in His Writings.”

For a different take, see Stephen King’s commentary for Entertainment Weekly.

There’s also a conversation on this topic over on the After the MFA blog.

Then there’s Diane Roberts’s commentary on NPR’s Weekend Edition (Sunday). You can hear it here.

Finally, there’s this article in the Baltimore Sun and this one in New York Magazine.
